Teachers Can Join Shop Talk

Instructors in Advanced Manufacturing Educator Community are Invited to Join “Shop Talk” on Thursday, March 26

Edu2Mfg is hosting a Shop Talk video conference call for Advanced Manufacturing teachers to share how they are overcoming the challenges of delivering their courses online.

According to Steve Dicus, retired CTE high school teacher and consultant to the Advanced Manufacturing North Region, connecting teachers to a community of educators is more important than ever before.

“Recent Shop Talk video conference calls have proven to be valuable to participants,” said Dicus. “We are building a positive community of teachers who can share their best practices. With the current situation, we all benefit from collaborating and sharing our experiences teaching students remotely.”
